    Lol Chris just posted what I was going to post.

    The initiation zone is going to be well south and west of where its pointing it

    https://www.xcweather.co.uk/

    Is it a CZ AROME is picking up or a trough? Only reason I ask is that whatever the feature is it seems to be connected to storms over the continent before triggering storms here. Also of note the storms that have my interest are for 17z onwards, not early afternoon. Interesting, my app now has 100% storm risk at 17z if you can believe it 😂

    19c here

     

    That's a temperature I've not felt for what feels like years, I'd rather like the cloud cover to go away so we can get some heating in.

    While yes, the storms may (and probably wont) be as bad as yesterday, no warnings have been 'removed' as per say, just shrunk down to where they think the thunderstorms will have the most chance of happening.

    This currently looks promising although I shouldn't get my hopes up really

    Untitled1.thumb.jpg.9502424defa3f10dd782d16b5a337957.jpg

    Just plotted where the eastern extent of this storm system is tracking. It appears to be building on the eastern side of the band of storms. If this continues then the eastern edge should follow the red arrow and means Scunthorpe should see some storms later this afternoon.

    Keep going like this storms and don't swerve westwards or die on me before you get to Scunthorpe

    Looks a bit underwhelming that big patch of precipitation that’s just about reached here from the South and East. Mostly with oranges, yellows and greens in it. But perhaps wouldn’t rule out the odd rumble of thunder or two. The rain is quite heavy.

    Was thinking this as well. Hopefully more cells build off it as it works its way up

    TORRO SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 2020/008

    A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH has been issued at 1050BST on Thusday 13th August 2020

    Valid from/until: 1050-0600BST on Thursday 13th/Friday 14th August 2020

    for the following regions of the United Kingdom & Ireland:

    The Midlands, E Anglia and S England

    Wales

    Southern Eire

    THREATS

    Hail to 20-30mm diamater; wind gusts to 50mph; frequent CG lightning; flash flooding; isolated tornadoes

    SYNOPSIS

    A very warm and humid airmass remains across the area, with several short-wave troughs moving WNW across the region throughout today and tonight. Showers and thunderstorms will be possible throughout the period - initially more elevated across parts of the Midlands this morning, but some surface-based storms will form this afternoon too, especially along convergence zones. Several clusters should form, with large hail and strong winds, as well as a risk of flash flooding. Isolated tornadoes are possible along convergence zones.

    Overnight, further showers and storms, mainly elevated, will move W across the area, with hail and flash-flooding possible.

    Temp just dropped 26 to 23. DP 19 and pressure now rising whereas it was falling. 

    That's what kept happening here for the last 2 days, about 1hour before all hell broke loose...  Got my Fingers/Toes/Legs AND Arms crossed for you 😛 🤞

    Unlikely, draw a line from the wash to South Wales and this is the zone for convective activity today.

    This band of rain just needs to get a move on, it’s not producing much convective activity whatsoever (except in the East) and is really bringing the temperature down which won’t help storms to develop later in the day.

    Maybe it'll hit Coningsby 😄 .  Big Jet TV is livestreaming from there, and he was moaning earlier on about the weather at Heathrow yesterday, and he's 'glad to be out of that today' 🤣
